This is a beautiful, old sword, and scabbard. This is in amazing condition, for age. It looks like it is all intact, except for the black leather scabbard that has come apart in pieces, where it attaches to the bronze connectors. I think it could be fixed.The handle is missing some of the wire trim, about half. The sword seems to be in great condition, some wear and age, pitting, a bit of tarnish. But, actually has a bit of an edge and could probably be sharpened. The black has etchings of Naval themed anchors, eagles, and maybe something else. Also, there seems to be a nam, or something else etched at the base of the blade near hilt.
This came from an old New Orleans family, and the house the have had in the family for generations. I know one of the members, and they have recently moved back into the house and had to clean it out to fit their stuff in. But, I have a appreciation of swords. The hilt, at widest point - 5.
